So, remember how much I loved my claw pooper scooper? Well, I’m adding a caveat …
It doesn’t work so great in the snow.
Sure, in newly fallen snow, you’ll be OK, but once layers upon layers of snow have drifted, hardened and gotten pockmarked from the wind and the dogs walking on it, it’s actually quite hard to scoop.
The paw prints in the snow don’t help, and … well … not to be too graphic, but the hot deposits tend to melt the snow and sink down.
I’ve nearly broken the claw pooper scooper trying to wiggle it enough to get underneath the piles.
I’ve taken to scooping everything immediately to avoid glitches, but I it looks like I might need a better mini-shovel, mini-rake option for winter.
Those of you who live in cold / snowy climates … any recommendations?
